If your situation has changed since your original order establishing maintenance or child support and you need an orders modification, the Fort Collins divorce maintenance attorneys at The Cossitt Law Firm can help you through the process toward the goal of a more equitable arrangement.
Modification of Parenting Time
For modifications of parenting time, we:
- Consider all options for our clients and their children, looking for creative, child-centered solutions
- Analyze the merits of a modification and advise clients on the options to take to proceed forward to achieve their goals
- Take immediate action when a child is endangered
- Negotiate when viable, and litigate when necessary
Modification of Maintenance
In addition to allowing for divorce maintenance, the court also allows for the modification of some maintenance orders. This is allowed when there has been a material change in circumstances, which is a change that either affects the need for maintenance or the ability to contribute maintenance to the other party.
Modification of Child Support
Your Fort Collins divorce maintenance attorney from The Cossitt Law Firm will help you with motioning the court for a modification of child support if a change in your financial circumstances warrants that. Child support can be modified any time there is a continuing change in circumstances that would warrant a 10% change in child support to be paid. Common changes that would warrant a modification of child support include a change in employment or income of either parent, change in parenting time, and/or a change in the needs of the child. Your Fort Collins divorce maintenance attorney will help you compile financial and other evidence, and will evaluate the merits of modifying child support.
The effective date of a modification of child support can be the date of the filing of a motion to modify child support, the date of an agreed-upon change in custody, or the date of any court order affecting parenting time.
If your situation has changed so that a modification of maintenance or child support orders would be in the best interest of your family, contact one of the Fort Collins family lawyers at The Cossitt Law Firm for a consultation. We serve clients throughout Larimer, Weld, and surrounding counties.
